Rutgers has chance to make statement against South Florida

Remember Rutgers?

Yeah, the school in Piscataway, N.J., that stole America's hearts last season?

The Scarlet Knights are still playing football, just not as well as they'd hoped so far this season. But Rutgers (4-2, 1-1 Big East) has a chance to re-enter the national picture in a big way on Thursday when it takes on unbeaten and second-ranked South Florida (ESPN, 7:30 p.m. ET) at rocking Rutgers Stadium.
